commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Open thread for June 15…….Site Upgrades and White House Hype….

I’ve been busy today doing some paperwork and house cleaning  the blog for a long due upgrade…..

And believe me it ain’t as easy all as the web hosting people and WordPress says it is….

First I started off in the wrong place…

Then I found the right place but WordPress is having problems….

I vow to be patient…..

The new Web Hosting people have my money now….

On the other front….

I’m now checking the net to do a post and I notice one thing….

The race is on!

Every media outlet has something on Obama going to the Gulf, Obama telling the BP what to do….The White House in charge …Congress beating BP up…The stocj taking a hit….

And the best ones…..The Clean up is Chaotic…..

They even have a picture of my man Thad Allen looking glum…..

Judging my the comments here I guess I’m the only one out here that ain’t looking to lynch BP…..

Well folks you got what ya asked for…

Obama and his adminstration now looks like they are going to own the OIl spill…

They are in charge (Not really ….They don’t drill or cap oil wells )

They are whipping BP (Not really, that comes tomorrow )…

And  the state actually coordinates the clean up…..

BUT THEY ARE THE LEAD NOW!

SEND YOUR PUNCHES TO THE PRESIDENT and the government….

BP will settle on  putting money aside….

That’s a smart thing….

For the states and BP….

And I hear that WH Press Secretary Gibbs thinks they can capture 90% of the oil by next month…..

The Alvin Greene saga continues……

Yes Sir!

South Carolina Republican’s AND Democrat’s

what a mess…..


On to other things….

Daniel won’t be around for the you guys to kick around for a month…

He’s busy at work……


So I’ll try to do a some polling pieces and anyone that wants to try their hand at it…..

Come on!

As usual…….

Comments Please!!!

I’ll take the slow hits today……

Open Thread for June 2nd …….

The June 1st Primary is gone……

Some real surprises for the masses……

Some not…..

Artur Davis lost…He never really had a chance running to right …in the South…As a black Democrat….

Parker Griffith lost also……

He never really survived the switch in parties…..

The remarkable thing is that a lot of races simply didn’t come out the way the polls said they would….

He, he, he,,,,,Like I said several times ….The Nate Silver post was right….He said that Southern Primary polls tend to be off as much as 9% points….

The Israeli’s and the Turks have problems….

The Biggest Gun sometimes doesn’t work against non-violence…

Obama gets stuck here…

The BP saga isn’t gonna get better by criminalizing an accident WHILE you’re trying to solve the problem….

Harry Reid is starting to look good……

And the V-22 is good aircraft …..that has a bad…bad…rep……

And SE gets the PRIZE for his help here on the June 1st Special Primary Coverage!

Daniel is also given props for setting the coverage up and starting it off

Yoeman’s Job!

I know no one is gonna think so…..

But my Salt post is one of the most important ones I have done since I started this site…….

Happy Birthday to my Mom!

Keep it up People!
